#RainbowSnippets – March 18, 2017 – WIP with Wes & Mike

I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: “Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).” Pretty cool, eh? Don’t forget to “Like” my Facebook page and/or my Facebook profile while you’re over there checking out this fantastic group!


Today I’m posting a snippet from an as-yet-unnamed WIP which will be a total from-the-ground-up overhaul of my old story A Dream Come True. The rewrite is told entirely from Mike’s 1st person POV (whereas the original was in both Mike and Wes’s 3rd person POV). While it will be essentially retelling the same basic story, this overhaul is significant enough I feel it deserves a fresh and shiny new title.

These are the opening 6 lines:

Chat up a telemarketer—that was one thing I’d rather do. Or engage in a conversation with someone handing out religious tracts on a street corner. Maybe ask that burly guy with the perpetual frown at the Express Lube to help me out with a little manscaping. I shuddered. No, maybe not that one.

Point being, there were plenty of things I’d rather do than face another roommate interviewee.

  1. LOL
    Love the list of alternative activities! (And I want the burly guy with the perpetual frown at the Express Lube to be the next interviewee. And to become his roommate. I don’t know either one of these characters but I am SOOO shipping them!

    1. Ha! That would be perfect, but no. That’s a fresh line in an old story. I love that idea…have a manscaping scene down the road with the guy helping out, LOL! I’m still working on the story, so maybe the burly guy can figure in somewhere, maybe show up as the date for one of the side characters…just not as Mike’s love interest. 🙂

  2. Hahahahahahaha!!!!! I can understand why he wouldn’t want to. I’m with Deb–the manscaping sounds like a great way to weed out the wrong sort. 😀 😀 😀

  3. Express Lube? Is that like a drive-in place for when you’ve run out of lube? Do they deliver? Or does the burly guy help with the lubing, and he’s very quick about it? So many questions! 🙂

    (Yeah okay, I had to google Express Lube since I don’t live in the US and the real thing was no fun. Wouldn’t a drive in lube place be awesome though? “Gimme a 30oz Astroglide, and make it quick!” 😀 )

    1. LOL, you cracked me up! No, reality isn’t nearly as much fun, but perhaps better explain’s Mike’s aversion to the idea of having the guy help him out with his personal grooming?
